Following from our magazine spreads on migration we are now developing that and making creative and interactive journalism to create more ideas and allow people to interact and have a way of enjoying something that can be digital. These elements are vital for creating an 'experience' for the viewer and allows them to see more elements of photography as well as each piece of information having its own identity and I am looking to make a coherent interactive magazine that goes along with the theme that I have.
I want my pieces to be quite dynamic and still look like my style as well as all link in with my first article that I made disploiting the black and white images that came along with the article. I want these to be early navigated so that the viewer is able find their way through the website without no hassle and they are able to get to the relevant information that they need.
I want to make images interactive so that when you click them you are able to be taken to another source of information if it peaks their interest. I want highlighted words that could lead off to other articles or relative pieces of information.
I felt the best place to start were to create some screens for the hyperlinks and interactive elements to start. This is where I started to think of how I would want the layout of my screens to look. I started by creating a fundamental base to both the opening and contents page. Although all information isn't there I am starting to see shape in how I can see other opportunities to make other interactive links
I carried on to experiment and make more screens before I would venture around with interactive elements within indesign. I wanted to make two of my screens my migration article to, to incorporate my work and allow there to be continuity,
Here are some screen grabs of some final mock ups I have made without adjustments to feedback. I wanted my App to be monochromatic and follow a similar style and look on each page to show continuity. Although the interactive features are not the most extravegant I gave it a go with it and wanted the main focus to be on the photography.The highlighted words are also set up to be clicked and linked to another page on the app for further information. The video of the run through is In My one Drive Folder Under 'Migration App'.
